Bookish Gifts For All

For the littlest bookworm on your list: Personalized bookplate stamp

I was an avid reader as a kid, and would have loved to stamp my books for my own little library. Not to mention, parents will appreciate the time spent stamping (craft time!) so they can have a few minutes of peace and quiet to read their own books…

Frostbeard Studio –

For the ‘read in the bath’ person: Old Books soy candle
Is there anything better than that old book smell? (Okay, maybe fresh baked chocolate chip cookies or anything frying in butter…) Even if reading on an e-reader the gift recipient can feel as though she’s surrounded by pages of her favorite books while relaxing in the tub…


Grammar Grumble Mugs -- The Literary Gift Company
Grammar Grumble Mugs — The Literary Gift Company


For the writer – and caffeine addict — on your list: Set of 6 Grammar Grumble mugs

I am coveting these mugs because as a writer I’m both a grammar nerd AND coffee obsessed – talk about killing two birds with one stone … (sorry, I’m also a writer who has a strange compulsion to use clichés from time to time…there I go again…)



Uncommon Goods - Library socks
Uncommon Goods – Library socks
The Literary Gift Company - Pashmina library card
The Literary Gift Company – Pashmina library card

For the old-school, library-loving reader on your list: Library card socks & Pashmina scarf

I loved both of these so much I couldn’t choose…imagine reading beside the fire, cup of coffee or tea and book in hand, scarf wrapped around your neck and socks keeping your toes toasty. Wearing so much library-themed fashion may be a tad nerdy, but hey – it’s all for the love of books!


PegandAwl - Book necklace
PegandAwl – Book necklace

For the reader who has almost everything: Antique leather postcard book necklace

These necklaces are one of a kind, which makes them even more special to give to the book lover in your life. And in case Santa (or my husband) is listening, this would also make a great launch party or Mother’s Day gift…*wink* *wink*

  1. I’m just gonna say it: I miss library cards. I loved when I got a fresh one and my name was the first one on it. And I loved even more when it was an old one, looking at the names who had read the book before me. And it felt so official, the librarian stamping the card when I checked out the book. Once, my mom brought one of those stamps home for us (she was a volunteer at the library), and my sister and I had so much fun “checking out” books.
    OK, enough nostalgia. Great list, Karma!!
